President Muhammadu Buhari says the attack on humanitarian workers in Rann, Borno State, has now shown Boko Haram terrorists as godless, brutish, and utterly to be despised.
The President condemned the attack by the insurgents on Friday in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
Members of the outlawed group had attacked an Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp on Friday, killing the three aid workers, while three others were injured and a female nurse missing.
Reacting to the incident, President Buhari said, “As I have always maintained, no true religion advocates hurting the innocent.”
“To now further attack and kill those offering humanitarian aid is the height of bestiality; it is odious before both God and man,” he added.
The President further sympathised with the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies working at Rann, and in the country generally.
He affirmed that such cowardly attacks can only bolster the determination of the Federal Government to bring the Boko Haram insurgency to a decisive end, in the shortest possible time.
